Air Canada Launches Flights Between Montreal and Lyon, France

Air Canada has launched non-stop flights between Montreal and Lyon-Saint-Exupery airport, the only year-round non-stop service between North America and Lyon.

Flights will operate five times weekly during the summer and four times weekly during the winter with a Boeing 767-300ER featuring 24 International Business Class lie-flat suites and 187 Economy class seats.

Lyon is the second largest metropolitan area in France and the capital of the Rhones-Alpes region.

"Air Canada has long served Paris Charles de Gaulle now with up to four daily flights, two from Montreal and two from Toronto. This new mainline route will further increase convenience for customers travelling to France for business or leisure," said Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines, at Air Canada. "We are strengthening our presence in the important French market where we also offer Air Canada Rouge service to Nice-Cte d'Azur four times a week during the popular summer vacation months."

James Cherry, President and Chief Executive Officer of Aroports de Montral, said, "I would like to congratulate and thank Air Canada for adding Lyon to its already impressive list of non-stop destinations served from Montreal. This new service will strengthen the unique synergy between Montreal and Lyon, a bond that was solidified when our cities were twinned in 1989."
